He was also included on a list of openly gay media professionals in The Advocate "Forty under 40" issue of June/July 2009. He has been married to his husband since 2004. Among other topics, Ari will talk about covering the Pulse Nightclub shooting, life as a journalist, Pink Martini, and Teeny Sweeney.
